It stated your financial responsibility if you were to get accepted and how to apply for aid. Just thought it was interesting they sent that after I interviewed weeks ago
Nothing from my side. I wonder if I should take this as a bad sign.

No idea really, the email really just details the fafsa and applying for scholarships and loans. Could be something they just send generally to domestic applicants

Hey all- I’m a Screenwriting applicant- a few of us got that letter too. It looks like it basically went out to anyone who’s submitted FAFSA, so it’s probably nothing either way.

Hey did anyone receive information regarding scholarships 🤔? I thought we were supposed to be notified upon acceptance.

Hi everyone.. I am an international applicant. Wondering what could be the options to get financial means to attend AFI especially that I didn't get the scholarship?

I asked the financial aid office the same thing and basically there isn't any😭. (Atleast from AFI directly.)You should try looking into non-afi scholarships or loans from your country.

But it is kind of impossible to find such a huge sum of money! You have to cumulate like a 100 scholarships to be able to afford the tuition fees and the living expenses.

Yes 😭 this is why they ask for bank statements from international students. External scholarships can definitely not cover everything. Using up personal savings and taking out loans from home countries will be the main source of funding. But applying for as many scholarships as you can will surely lessen the burden.

I don't have that kind of money and i cannot secure it. So I have to give it up. I searched in the past month for alternative financial means but couldn't find any. It breaks my heart but had to tell AFI i won't be able to attend.

Anyways I don't have the means. Did my best to find alternative financial means but eventually wrote to the admissions to tell them that I give up my seat cos i don't have the money. Breaks my heart.

don't just give up yet, see if they will allow you to defer for a year and you can maybe use that time to get more money??

I'm sorry to hear that ☹. But just like Yisiling said you can try asking for a deferral. And in the meanwhile actively communicate with Jill Murrin that you are eager to attend but struggling with funding. You might be able to receive some scholarship when someone who has been awarded scholarship declines their admission offer.
I hope everything sorts out for you.
